MEDFORD, WI (WTAQ) - An 18-year-old woman is spending 30 days in jail, after she admitted lying to police about a threat she made at Medford High School in February.

Denarah Kitzman was supposed to be sentenced July 8th, but she skipped the hearing – and she was later picked up on a warrant in Iron County, close to her new home in Ironwood Michigan.

Kitzman struck a plea deal with prosecutors in which she pleaded no contest to obstructing an officer, and a disorderly conduct charge from earlier in February. Counts of battery and bail jumping were dropped.

Police said Kitzman left a threatening note to students in a girls’ bathroom at Medford High. Security was beefed up the next day, and school officials gave parents the option of keeping their kids home without penalty.

Almost three-fourths of the students took advantage. Kitzman was ordered to pay almost $1,150 in fines and court costs. She must also write a letter of apology.
